The mix of home styles in the charming neighborhood of Chevy Chase in Maryland includes homes built decades ago with a few newer residences. One of these newer homes, built in 2002 by Patrick K. Keating of PKK Builders Inc., is on the market for $2,095,000.

The stone-and-shingle Colonial-style single-family home at 4334 Leland St. includes a few arts-and-crafts details, which give it added presence in the neighborhood. While the home itself offers plenty of attractions, many buyers initially will be drawn to this residence because of its location. Just one block from the home is the Leland Community Center, which includes outdoor tennis courts and a playground in addition to a gym, basketball courts, volleyball courts, an art room, conference room and social rooms.

Residents also can walk to the Bethesda Metro, the Capital Crescent Trail, the Bethesda Public Library and Chevy Chase Elementary School. Countless shops and restaurants, movie theaters and the Round House Theatre are all within walking distance of this home.

The home has four finished levels with six bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths. Throughout the home, the builder added custom millwork such as crown and chair-rail moldings, beadboard and storage cubbies; custom window treatments including drapes, wood shutters and blinds; and skylights and ceramic tile floors in the baths and showers. The first level has 10-foot-high ceilings, and the home comes with a private deck and fenced yard. The kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, solid cherry cabinets and granite counters.

The home has eight ceiling fans, a humidifier, a security system, an oversized water heater, plenty of storage space, dual-zone heating and air conditioning and energy-efficient double-paned windows. In addition, there is a detached one-car garage.

A welcoming, covered front porch with columns sits above a stone foundation. Similar columns are found inside the foyer, flanking the entrance to the living room, which has hardwood floors and a fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases. A knee-height wall and columns separate the living room from the formal dining room. The living room has hardwood floors, chair-rail moldings and a tray ceiling. A nearby powder room has charming beadboard walls and a pedestal sink.

The kitchen includes a center-island breakfast bar, a built-in desk under a window, a breakfast area and a pass-through opening to the family room for easy entertaining. The family room includes a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, hardwood floors, built-in bookcases and cabinets, a coffered ceiling and French doors to a deck.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a triple picture window on one wall with four more windows on another wall, along with a built-in bookcase in the foyer. The bedroom has a tray ceiling and an adjacent walk-in closet and luxury bath with beadboard walls, a soaking tub, a separate shower and two sinks.

This level also has three more bedrooms, while the finished fourth level has another bedroom, a loft area and a second family room.

The finished lower level has another bedroom with a full bath and an office.
